Style Notes: How to style up that fail-safe white sundress? Just add a wide-brim straw hat with a ribbon tie.

Filù is the destination for cute sun hats right now.

2. Opt for cute co-ords.
Cute outfits: Oumayma El Boumeshouli



Style Notes: A cute co-ord is a great choice for day or night. Oumayma opted for a two-piece from Faithfull, where you'll find floaty fabrics and summer-ready prints in abundance.

Wear this with the matching skirt (up next), or style with white jeans and slides.

Or why not style this wrap midi skirt with a basic white tee, hoops and sunnies?

Style Notes: If anyone knows about good frocks, it's Lisa Aiken. The style supremo slipped into this season's must-have polka-dot print, completing the look with a Cult Gaia bag and super-slim sunnies.

4. Embrace yellow.

Style Notes: Yellow is the hottest hue to be seen in right now, and a cute tea dress worn with woven slides and a matching bag is the simplest way to get in on the trend.

Just add mules and a clutch for a standout wedding-guest look.

Style Notes: What's better than a red striped crop top? A red striped crochet crop top. Roberta Benteler teams hers with supersized denim, flat sandals and punchy earrings.

This is currently still in stock, but we predict a sellout.

#6: Invest in an animal-print midi skirt.
Cute outfits: Adenorah



Style Notes: Animal-print midi skirts are trending this summer. Take your style cue from Adenorah, who styles her Réalisation iteration with a tie-shoulder top and strappy sandals.

Style Notes: No wardrobe is complete without a pair of mood-boosting shades, and according to Hanna Stefansson and the majority of the style set, round retro-style frames are the look du jour.

These also come in tortoiseshell.

Style Notes: Not one for minimalists, this cheery pair of Staud trousers is guaranteed to brighten the greyest of days.

9. Finish your look with a directional basket bag.
Cute outfits: Rosa Sofia



Style Notes: We're still not ready to give up our woven bags, and we're not the only ones. Take your cue from Rosa Sofia and swap your hero basket for something structured with a shot of colour.

10. Revisit the prairie top.
Cute outfits: Lindsey Holland



Style Notes: There's no better time to try a prairie top than during the warm summer months, and according to Lindsey Holland, a black cropped iteration paired with white denim shorts is the ultimate off-duty ensemble.

You could also style this with printed midi skirts and heels.

Style Notes: If you're not into denim—or you simply fancy a change—look to Bettina Looney for expert white-trouser styling tips. So chic.

Style Notes: The timeless red sundress has had a new-season update, and we're now looking to styles that feature some form of ruffle detail, preferably around the neckline or on the shoulder.

Style with fine gold earrings, espadrilles and fuss-free hair.

13. Pair wardrobe essentials with unexpected accessories.
Cute outfits: Pernille Teisbaek



Style Notes: Those well-worn jersey tees and ankle-grazing jeans will feel instantly cuter when worn with a new pair of yellow heels or sunnies.

The perfect hue and the perfect heel height—these mules are worth every single penny.
